East Anglia is a region in the east of England with a rich history and a number of inspiring sites to discover. Because of its location close to mainland Europe and its large areas of open and flat terrain, East Anglia was an ideal location for airfields, so numerous bases were constructed in the region as part of the Allied Offensive to defeat the Nazis. Many of these airfields can still be seen today. Explore the city of Cambridge on the River Cam and walk through its American Cemetery and Memorial.
